Realities of Race: Mass Incarceration

Social Concerns Seminar
CSC 33973

This seminar will take a close look at the realities of race in the United States in the 21st century through the lens of mass incarceration. How can Catholic Social Teaching inform our conversation and response to the realities? The classes before immersion will seek honest dialogue about the complexities of race with regard to history, current events, racism, and privilege. The class will explore various expressions of incarceration and ways in which different communities experience the injustice of incarceration throughout U.S. history.
